I loved Working with Linda from the time we first met. I explained my vision and she executed exactly what I wished for. My floral arrangements turned out perfectly and I couldn't have been more happy with how beautiful all the flowers looked. They even lasted after a week of my wedding! Millers florist is very reasonably priced and they listen to what you really want to ensure satisfaction. I have recommended them to a few friends and even have one of them booking with them! They had great communication and were helpful in choosing out what I wanted since I don't really know a lot about flowers! we even went to the warehouse to look at the different types of flowers to get an idea of what my bouquets would actually look like. I will keep her in mind for any other event I may need floral arrangements done for! What a great vendor, one of my favorites to work for, you must check them out!

This staff is very unprofessional. After the initial meeting we paid a deposit and signed a contract, that the main florist, Linda and her staff ended up losing. After trying to contact her via email for a week she confused me with another bride and admitted that she lost my paperwork. And the paperwork she gives clients is not typed out and has words that are scratched out and written on top of. Very unprofessional. My final consultation was spent going over everything we previously discussed and she still got it wrong. I was never able to see what my flowers would look like. I wanted a cascading bouquet, that I paid for. The main florist showed me the picture and everything but when the flowers arrived on my wedding day, it was all wrong. My bouquet was not what I wanted. My color was burgundy and she sent my bridesmaids bouquets with purple ribbon. Then wanted to argue with me that the tag on the ribbon said burgundy. A professional florist should use their eyes and know that purple and burgundy are no where in the same color family. My husband and I were very unhappy with their services. The main florist wanted to blame my paperwork being lost on her daughter-in-law that she calls staff, but the responsibility of who keeps up with clients' information, deposits, and contract should not be the clients concern.After speaking with Linda she said she would provide me with the picture of the bouquet I picked to show what it initially looked like, and I never received the picture. I notice that Linda mentions (in the comments below) our initial meeting where I had a migraine headache that sent me to the hospital and she knows all that information. She was called as soon as I left the hospital. Then my fiance' at the time and I took the long trip to meet with her at her house and it make it more accommodating for her since I was rushed to the hospital for the first meeting. For her to mention that I didn't show and not mention that I was in the hospital says a lot about her and her professionalism. I do not recommend Miller's Florist to any bride.

We designed her bouquet what the picture looked like. We have been doing cascading for 8 years. There were no greens to it. The ribbon that we bought did say burgundy on it. She lacks to tell that her first appojntment she did not call or show up at the location that we were going to meet at. There never was a sign contract her original papers were lost. We are teaching my daughter inlaw the business in the office . I was more tehn accomadating giving her a free bridesmaids bouquet at our next meeting. When we do finals you do not get all the flowers and sometime not the colors. It is to go over everything what they wanted and the delivery times. If we had gotten a swatch sample we would have used that. Sorry for how she feels but we go beyond for our clients and sometimes paperwork does get lost. We would have sent her a contract that was typed with the proposal. But since the original was lost we never had it put in the system. I have kept saying send me the contract that she claims but there has never been one sent yet.

Millers Florist was one of my favorite wedding vendors, so when I saw a few bad reviews on here, I knew I needed to give my opinion.

I was happy with Linda. She stuck exactly to the prices in our contract. I ended up having less tables and she didn’t make me pay for the floral arrangements I didn’t need. My bouquets showed up on time at the hotel before the wedding. When I got to the venue, everything was already set up for the ceremony and looked awesome. I never saw anybody….but it all happened seamlessly. Exactly what I wanted on my wedding day.

My flowers exceeded my expectations. Many people gave me compliments on them. I will admit that I told Linda I did not want much green leaves in them, and the talls ones had quite a bit of green. But she did such a beautiful job with them that I didn't mind at all.

The review about the “burgundy” ribbon made me laugh. Burgundy was one of my wedding colors. We went to the floral mart together before my wedding and she asked if I wanted a burgundy ribbon. I had her take me to the ribbon isle to show me the one labeled “burgundy” and the color was totally not what I wanted. I blame the ribbon company for that.

The other florist that quoted me said my budget didn’t allow for tall arrangements and then quoted over my budget on the short arrangements.For the price, I really think you can’t beat her.

My bridal bouquet and my bridemaid's flowers were gorgeous! BUT Linda didn't show up until 3 hours after we got to the venue, so we didn't have any of them for photos. She claims the manager of Chataue Bu Sche said he wouldn't let her in but myself, my husband, the bridal party, the DJ and my grandparents had been there for 3 hours before she waltzed in.

should have been a red flag since she DIDN'T show up to our second meeting! She said she had a family emergency and blamed her daughter in law for not calling us.. we drove in total 2 hours to meet her (we live in elgin...) and then waited an hour.

-She called the other bride at the venue a "Bridezilla" to me, and laughed. (yeah I got that one on camera...) Really professional.

We Ordered:
centerpieces: a medium glass bowl interwoven with calla lillies and amathyst ribbon, grey stone at the bottom, and orchids floating in water on top of a mirror with two tea lights on corners.

We Got:
centerpieces: a medium glass bowl with calla lillies and purple ribbon, some brown rocks, and a floating RED tea light. (it looked awful.)

We ordered:
Our Trellis: she said and I quote "It will be FULL of flowers, top to bottom, I hate when people skimp ya'" and laughed. and showed us a picture of what she would do.

We got: three bouquets of flowers, two on each side one top middle, connected with about 8 yards of tooling.

To sum up: She missed our second meeting with out a call, she showed up 3 hours late to to wedding, she didn't deliver what we signed out contract for, and bashed other brides to me.

DO NOT BOOK THIS FLORIST.

We find it pretty funny that someone would be putting something on from last year when we never heard back from her. If you deliver to the Chateau you are not allowed into the building as a Vendor to 30 minutes before. Any Vendor knows this, Never heard from this bride before this. I find it kind of strange that nothing was said before.

Much like some of the previous reviews mentioned, I had high hopes for Miller's Florist and was gravely disappointed.

I was impressed with my initial consultation with Linda and thought that I had really lucked out---I was getting exactly what I wanted for under $1000. My requests were pretty straightforward--roses, tulips, stephanotis. I was further impressed when we went to the floral mart and she showed us the various flowers and gave me some other suggestions for the centerpieces such as floral lights and stones. I thought she understood my visions and I even sent her emails with pictures of my centerpieces.

The Weds. before my wedding she emailed me (not called me) if I could have someone transport our church floral arrangements to the reception venue so she could save on gas. My bouquet was dropped off at my house and it was half the size I thought it would be (it was smaller than some bridal bouquets I've had) and it had white pipe cleaners in it.

I arrived at my reception and the centerpieces were completely wrong. Not only had she not altered the sizes of the vases after I asked them to be changed after she had shown me a sample, but they did not contain any of the floral lights or stones that she had suggested.

I emailed Linda with all my concerns after my wedding and I received an email back from her basically telling me that she had done certain things because of reasons or explanations we had never talked about. In response to the pipecleaners in my bouquet (which are visible in my pictures, by the way), she said "all florists use pipecleaners." In response to my comment about my bouquet being quite small she said, "if it was any bigger it would have been unmanageable."

I thought I was very clear about my requests and altered my signed contract to make sure it was clear, and I still do not believe Miller's Florist fulfilled the terms of our contract.

Amy vases were larger we did not even charge her for the extra cost. They were like the picture. Her bouquet we added extra flowers even to her bridesmaids so that they would not look so small. Every florist do use pipe cleaners to put stephonotis on. No matter what we would have done for her she still would not have been happy.

My flowers turned out absolutely beautiful. I got married in the fall and chose a variety of flowers and colors for my bouquets. Linda did a great job of putting it all together. The bouquets were stunning. The price was also right. I got my bouquet, three bridesmaid bouquets, three corsages, nine boutonnieres, 10 pew adornments, and 10 centerpieces for just under $1000.

For a friend's wedding in the middle of July, her white flowers were wilting and browning at the edges. I don't know if that's a florist problem, but be careful about what flowers you choose!

It can be difficult to get in contact with Linda, so if you are the type of person who will need to communicate a lot with the florist, you may want to look elsewhere.

I specifically asked for burgundy and light pink flowers that were all the same size and she gave me bouquets of red and pink flowers of many different sizes. I asked for no greenery in the centerpieces and there were big green leaves. The cost was good and I guess it all looked fine, but it was just troublesome that she did not do what we asked.

Our flowers looked great - and the price is amazing - we paid about HALF of what we had been quoted with other florists! Linda is really sweet and took my mom and me to the flower wholesale market to see all the options so we could decide exactly what we wanted. She was also willing to come to meet me at my house or at the starbucks nearby - i didn't have to drive anywhere to meet her! Linda is creative and the flowers were perfect!

I disagree with all the negative reviews, but I know everyone could have a different experience. Mine was great!!! My flowers were just red roses but I wanted them to look elegant, and of course I had a budget. She doesn't over price and she works with you to make sure you get what you want and gives you other options if you're not comfortable with the price. I had flowers at the church which looked amazing, all my bridesmaids bouquets were tagged with their names and looked wonderful, and my bouquet was gorgeous. She also delivered everything to all locations on time and set everything up. Just a minor problem that she said she would provide a throw away bouquet and she forgot, but that wasn't a big deal to me. Also my centerpieces were stunning!!! I had short and tall with square vases and a flower submerged in the water in the tall vases, they looken beautiful!!!! Better than I thought actually!!!! All my guests thought for sure they belonged to the reception site so they didn't want to take them until we told them they could take them home. Also my friend that is engaged and attended my wedding loved my centerpieces and decided to book Linda as well. I would recommend Linda to anyone she is great!!!!!!
